My mid-2011 11"'s battery has been unacceptable since day one, usually no more than 2 or 3 hours before I have to recharge.When I first got it, it would run 6-7 hours at a time on a full charge. I just took it off the charger and I'm being greeted with 1:52. Is this a common occurrence?

These two replies illustrate the fact that battery life from a charge is completely dependent on the settings and workload chosen by each user. If you're not getting good life from a charge, read the section I recommended in my first post.Nope, I'm still getting a good 4-6 hours off a single charge.
This has been my experience. I get varying battery life based on what I am doing i.e., playing games seem to drain the battery the fastest.The battery meter is constantly changing depending on the load you are putting on it at the time. If your playing a game it may show 1:30 hours left if you continue playing the game. If you stop playing and start using a word processor it might change again saying you have 2:30 hours left.
